Morales-Núñez, Heard & Bird, 2019


Abstract
Previous information on the taxonomy and distribution of the crustacean order Tanaidacea occurring within the widely-dispersed Polynesian Archipelago has been limited to four nominal species, Apseudes rikiteanus Nobili, Apseudes seurati Nobili, Zeuxo seurati (Nobili) and Tanzanapseudes polynesiensis Müller. Based on specimens collected between 2009 and 2011 from coastal waters of Mo‘orea Island (Society Islands, French Polynesia), two new metapseudid tanaidaceansApseudomorpha drummi and Cryptapseudes mamua, are described. Keys to the identification of species currently placed within the genera Apseudomorpha Guţu and Cryptapseudes Băcescu are provided.

Keywords: Crustacea, Tanaidacea, Metapseudidae, Apseudomorpha, Cryptapseudes, Taxonomy, Pacific Ocean
